Fensong leader, Cate Markwell said: "It tells us exactly how Queen Jadis got into Narnia and became the White Ice Queen of the story. As usual there will be features of physical theatre and a deaf signed finale, as has become our custom."

Abigail Scott, 15, said: "I'm excited about the show because I am working with the other members of Fensong who all fit together like a family and to see the faces of the community that come to see the performance, who don't really leave their homes because there isn't a lot on, however we are slowly changing that.

"If people are house bound it's an opportunity to meet new people and see what is happening in their villages that they might not know about."

Chris O'Shea-Barnes, 19, said: "It's a lot of fun and it has bits of comedy and bits of seriousness in the performance, we have had so much fun rehearsing and learning the play."

Tickets are £3 for concessions and £5 for adults.
